With the mantra 'Indulge. Restore. Repeat.’, the collection is inspired by nature and crafted from organic and fair trade certified extra-dark chocolate.
The Vermont-based chocolatier said the line was born from the desire that chocolate should preserve and protect restorative moments, ‘both in life and in our environment’.
“Today more than ever, we seek restorative moments of peace and serenity,” said Allyson Myers, LCC’s director of sales and marketing. “With this new line of bars, not only will consumers be transported beyond the daily chaos for a brief, serene moment, with each bite they preserve and protect restorative spaces in nature.”
As a Certified B Corporation, Lake Champlain Chocolates said it believes in using business as a force for good, “whether it’s exploring exciting flavor combinations, strengthening local agriculture, by using Vermont cream, honey and maple syrup in their chocolate, or fighting climate change.”
The new Restorative Moments Chocolate Bar Collection is the next step in LCC’s sustainability journey.
The collection’s six flavors, all made with 70% organic and fair trade certified chocolate, include Extra Dark, Lightly Salted, Crunchy Quinoa, Raspberry Jam, Hazelnut Crunch, and Golden Spice (ginger, turmeric, cardamom, and cinnamon). Each one is wrapped in an ‘eye-catching design that evokes the last slice of the summer sun setting behind the mountains as its colors reflect back across the lake’.
“Not only do consumers help the planet by purchasing these bars, we anticipate this line to have broad appeal with 78% of fine chocolate consumers and 58% of general chocolate consumers preferring high cocoa content bars,” said Myers.
